Why more kids should play chess and less should watch TV, by Caroline Turner.
Chess is more exciting than watching TV. TV rots your brain and with chess you are actually doing something and thinking for yourself. I'm a 9 year old girl and I find that playing a game of chess is much more satisfying than watching TV or playing on the computer. Chess helps you think and concentrate. It helps you solve problems and it helps you with your school work systemically rather than looking for inspiration. Once my little brother and sister can play chess (they are only 6 and 8), we will be able to play chess on long car journeys and even chess tournaments which will make the car journeys seem quicker.
